A cultural hotspot managed by students, where you can have the best lunch (quality and simple are the keywords), for a very descent price. It’s a pub, club, restaurant, cinema and cultural center. You will find a lot of locals here, since it’s one of the only nice bars in the area (the upcoming east), and they throw nice parties.

Coco’s Outback – Thorbeckeplein 8-10
THE Australian pub in Amsterdam. It’s maybe not what you’re looking for since you are in the Netherlands to experience some Dutch stuff, but for the homesick ozzies it’s a good spot. A few things they have: an open fire, leather chairs & couches, a pooltable, darts, loads of Dutch and Australian beers, the biggest burgers in town, homemade pies and much more…
